The Yamazaki 18-Year Old Single Malt
Suntory’s premier single malt is Yamazaki. Yamazaki is where the unexpected, subtle, and profound qualities of a Japanese single malt were first developed.
Whisky experts from all over the world highly laud its distinctive multi-layered flavor, which has a spiritual and profound flavor profile. In addition to being the best single malt whisky in Japan today, Yamazaki is also popular in more than 35 other nations.
The 18-year-old has a strong scent of Japanese oak and mature fall fruit.
Nose: truffles, thick bitter marmalade, and resin. Potpourri and heavy Oloroso sherry.
A rich, bittersweet palate with heather roots, cigar leaves, honey, toffee apples, plum wine, and black pepper. A touch of rancio, perhaps…
Finish: a long, fruity, marmalade-led finish.
